THE ASX BLACK
CIRENCESTER, UK – Following the success of the Mitsubishi ASX, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK are about to extend the ASX range with the introduction of the ASX Black, a new special edition model with enhanced exterior styling and a bespoke interior.
From the outside the new Mitsubishi ASX Black boasts a dynamic appearance with the introduction of satin black styling kit which includes striking black 17” alloy wheels, roof, spoiler, mirrors, grille and fog lamp bezels. The interior benefits from the addition of a special edition black leather kit featuring carbon fibre inserts.
